Upcoming Article

Up Country Pines
11" x 17.9"
Casey Klahn

The following is an excerpt from my upcoming article in The Scribbler.

New faces have more authority than accustomed ones,” Euripides.

Authentic art is the sacring bell of the artist's experience. If you are able to say something new with your pastels, people will beat a path to your studio door.

Developing authority as a pastelist is achieved by creating authentic artwork that is singular and unique. Authority is as uncommon now as it ever was.
